the majesty of God

I long to be constantly in awe of God and who he is. I find myself often caught up in the necessary, urgent, and (in the big scheme of things) unimportant details of life. But what I crave is to be swept up in the majesty and wonder of God. I don't think I'm alone. I think all of us - because we're made in the image of God - long to be amazed by true majesty.

I recently heard the following quote from Charles Misner, a scientific specialist in general relativity theory, about why Albert Einstein probably never became a Christian:

[The design of the universe] is very magnificent and shouldn't be taken for granted. In fact, I believe that is why Einstein had so little use for organized religion, although he strikes me as a basically very religious man. He must have looked at what the preachers said about God and felt that they were blaspheming. He had seen much more majesty than they had ever imagined, and they were just not talking about the real thing.

Oh, that we would be people who study creation and the Bible enough to know how truly majestic our mighty God is!

    The man whom God gave wisdom and understanding beyond measure, and wealth that took away the breath of the Queen of Sheba, was used by God to build, for the sake of the name of the Lord, a house. A house to display the splendor and majesty of God. Solomon used 70,000 burden-bearers and 80,000 stonecutters who were managed by 3,300 chief officers over seven years. What an incredible site to behold. Yet it was torn down. We are left with a much more incredible, beautiful, majestic, awesome thing to behold, the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 2Cor4:6
